The available VCDX defense dates (and locations) are been recently announced on a thread in the VMware Community. Some were already well know (during the PEX event).

The interesting aspect is that is still possible reach the VCDX4(-DV) certification for the entire 2013 (big change on what was announced one year ago and really a good opportunity for VCDX candidates):

Candidates at all 2013 VCDX Defenses will be offered the opportunity to submit and defend vSphere4 and vSphere5-based designs in pursuit of the VCDX4 credential. Candidates may also choose to submit and defend vSphere5-based designs in pursuit of the VCDX-DV credential. Support for the VCDX4 credential will continue until the prerequisite certifications are retired.

Also is really interesting that on each defense there will be a boot camp (that seems to be really useful in VCDX preparation):

All 2013 VCDX Defenses will be preceded by a ½ day VCDX Preparatory Boot Camp. Boot Camp details and registration opportunities will be made available in the weeks prior to each event.

This will be the defense schedule for 2013 (also visible on VCDX4-DV and VCDX5-DV official pages):

  • February 23-28, 2013 – VMware Partner Exchange (PEX), Las Vegas, NV, USA Register Now
  • April 22-26, 2013 – VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) on Tour, Tokyo, Japan Register NowApplications are due Midnight PDT (UTC -8;00) March 22, 2013
  • April 29-May 3, 2013 – VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) on Tour, Sydney, Australia Register NowApplications are due Midnight PDT (UTC -8;00) March 29, 2013
  • August 26-29, 2013 – VMworld San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA Register NowApplications are due Midnight PDT (UTC -8;00) July 12, 2013
  • October 15-17, 2013 – VMworld Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain Register NowApplications are due Midnight PDT (UTC -8;00) August 16, 2013

Actually those are all VCDX-DV defenses, but maybe last dates could also become VCDX-Cloud and/or VCDX-DT defenses?
